The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is contemplating visiting Pakistan for the 2023 Asian Cup. India’s visit to Pakistan for the 2023 Asian Cup will be subject to official approval at that time, but now is on the agenda of the Board of Control for Cricket in India. The Indian team last went to Pakistan in 2006.
A BCCI letter distributed to state associations on the Thursday before the Annual General Meeting (AGM) on October 18 details India’s multilateral obligations in 2023 as follows:
As reported by Cricbuzz, BCCI circulated a note about the team’s plans to participate in various multilateral events for the coming year to state associations ahead of the board’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) scheduled for October 18.
Pakistan is set to host the 50+ Asian Cup in the second part of 2023, followed by the World Cup in India. And, if this message is any indicator, the BCCI appears willing to visit Pakistan, which has been a no-go zone since 2008, when India competed in an Asian Cup.
When contacted, BCCI officials were hesitant to take a position, although it is worth noting that Jay Shah, the BCCI secretary, is also the director of the Asian Cricket Council (ACC).
“As always, it will be subject to the authorization of the Government of India,” Jay Shah said when asked about the chances of India going to Pakistan for the 2023 Asian Cup. Shah is the secretary of BCCI and chairman of Asian Cricket Council (ACC).
